Introducing a new, comprehensive guide to the raptors of Singapore: The Visual Guide to Singapore Raptors!
In this edition, we have plates individually capturing each of Singapore’s 25 (as of writing) non-vagrant raptors, meaning every raptor species which appears more or less annually has its own page, including all residents. The remaining species are also illustrated on a smaller page. We also highlight the other migratory birds which are often seen from raptor watch sites like Henderson Waves on a separate panel.
Inspired by Max’s poster from last year, which shows birds as they usually appear in the sky – as mostly black silhouettes – this guide focuses on plumage traits in addition to the overall structure of the birds for a greater depth of identification features. We hope you will find this guide useful as you comb the skies in search of our birds of prey!
